Watch live ‘self-driving’ semi truck test in Tampa

Check out live video of an autonomous truck driving test that took place in Tampa, Florida.

On the morning of Monday, May 13, Starsky Robotics tested out self driving truck technology on the elevated reversible lanes of the Selmon Expressway. The company said that a truck driver is on hand in case something went wrong.

The event was covered by several news stations across the country, but most of them gave up on their live coverage of the event after the truck didn’t move for about an hour. Cameras finally captured the truck moving a short distance before coming to a stop again.

Testing of the self-driving truck technology on the Selmon Expressway will continue through Wednesday, according to WFLA.
